Milksha (迷客夏): a New Taiwanese Bubble Tea Chain on Robson Street

I have been going to a lot of bubble tea shops lately. At one point, I was visiting five different shops in one week, which was probably a crazy move. Anyway, Robson Street is slowly turning into a street of bubble tea. I’ve counted, including the ones that are opening soon, there are at least seven different shops, opening side by side. Milksha (迷客夏), a popular Taiwanese bubble tea chain recently opened its door on Robson Street, next to Ole Chicken & Tapas. This is the first location in North America, which I am excited to be one of the first customers to try them!

Mr. Mustache Tea & Dessert: Bento Box and Oolong Tea Macchiato

It is difficult to look for a cafe that opens until midnight in Vancouver, but if you are in the Burnaby or Marpole area, I have a recommendation for you. Mr. Mustache Tea & Dessert has 2 locations, one on Granville Street and one across Metrotown on Sussex Street. The best thing about the cafe is that it opens until midnight. It is surprised to see how packed it is around 10 pm. Recently, the Burnaby location launched a new dessert, Bento Box, an earl grey cake with fresh pearls on the side.

Weekend Tea: Premium Quality Fruit Tea in South Burnaby

Last week, I brought my friends to try out a newly-opened tea shop in Burnaby, across from OneZo Tapioca. Unlike any bubble tea shops out there, Weekend Tea is known for fruit teas made with real fruits. From sweetness, flavors, to toppings, all drinks are customized to pair well with every element. For example, the Lychee Fruit Tea is paired with aloe vera and lychee bits. Therefore, customers are not given the option to customize sweetness or add toppings to the drinks.
